Who would have guessed that Venice, of all places, would build a sci-fi futurist skyscraper?
Then again, anything can be approved if they managed to build that thing in Graz...

It's not like it's being built in the historical center.

I know minus minus equals + in math, but putting an ugly building in an ugly environment doesn't make it okay all of a sudden lol :P

For my sake, they can just move this to behind the Alps, so you can't see it from Venice.

Furthermore I consider that Marghera Port must be razed!

We can only hope it won't be build... There's some cities in the world that just shouldn't build any highrises at all.

Especially not incredibly ugly ones, like Palais Lumiere.

It is far away from the islands, so height shouldn't be a problem. It is the design which fails dramatically.

Cardin eventually threw in the towel

Pierre Cardin's Palais Lumière has been cancelled on 28 June owing to a massive opposition. Though, the tower is likely to get built, either in Brazil or in China...

Here's an article (in french) ---> HERE
